This new exhibition showcases Alex Prior and Wayne Foskett’s work around the theme of light. Both artists are interested in what light can reveal and, equally, what it conceals. The natural phenomena of light is enigmatic and this quality is what both artists observe in their work, catching the elusive conditions of light and the subtleties within.

Wayne Foskett works primarily with pinhole photography, engaging with the serendipitous nature of the technique and its ability to transform the banal into the poetic.

Alex Prior’s work explores recurring themes of memory, the ephemeral, loss and transience both through the subject matter and the materials incorporated. The work encourages the viewer to pause and look closer, drawing in the gaze to reveal the overlooked and the unseen.
